Talking v8 swap

hi all im new to the ranger seen just purchased a 1988 2w drive 5 speed thinking of swapping in a 90 model 5.0 out of a mustang with a c4 needing to know if the mustang headers and pipes will work?

Nope. Well, maybe if you cut them up and fabricated everything to fit somehow.. Headers are a tight fit. If you're using a 154 tooth bell, Tri-Ys may be an option.

Was looking at the option of using mustang headers and would have cut too much off of the frame, went with Advanced Adapters custom headers for the ranger and welded my own exhaust. Been working good for the last 3 years.
